    Haha!

    I wondered why Ferrari put the wets on Kimi so early. It's not working out for him.

    they trust that the weatherman is spot on with the weather forecast but it isn't the case so he overheated the tyres when the rain finally falls

    what an end to the malaysian GP. havent seen such horrible conditions since japan GP 2 yrs ago.

    Congrats to Jenson for a wet win. Great job for Brawn.

    What a mess from Ferrari - the team management really need to get itself sorted out.

    Kinda spoiler. And heck, saw my favorite driver, Kimi ALL CHANGED from his driving suit into his Ferrari Shirt & Bermudas enjoying a Walls Magnum and Coke.

    Wake up, Ferrari!

    Well this goes to show that twilight racing isnt the way to go!

    Australia complain low sun levels and deep shadows = cant see track edge.
    Malaysia thunderstorm, even strike the camera, cant even drive

    Either day or night racing!

    But to be fair, maybe the Brazilian GP which takes place at a equivalent time of 1am racing should be brought forward to dawn racing so that Asians can watch it a 8pm prime slot!

    First 2 race of GP 2009 ended under the safety car
    Hope the next race in Shanghai will have exciting finish

    Kimi 'The Ice-cream Man' Raikkonen. Maybe we should start calling him this?

    europe has the largest f1 viewership numbers so race timings will always be tweaked to their convenience.

    actually brazilian GP is still alright managed to get in few hrs of sleep after the race. US GP is the worst as it's almost near 5am when race is finished

    yup they have one of the largest fan base there but true fans will still wake up early to watch the day time races. Hope this twilight issue gets scrapped next year. Its either day or night racing. No in between.

    I was on the plane when the race began. Looks like I didn't miss much.

    Stefano D keep saying "it's unacceptable", but he's been saying that since last season. What has changed? Absolutely NOTHING!

    For Massa's case: Overconfident and still living in 2007.
    For Kimi's case: Same as last year. At least last year, they had intermediates, now full wets. Gone case liao.

    The drivers aren't magicians. The team members aren't miracle workers. It requires a skillful manager and strategist to steer the team to success. Stefano D, you have failed miserably!!!

    A sad week for Ferrari. I hope Stefano D takes a self-imposed vacation and let Michael fill in during his vacation.

    today's race so anti-climax.. usually rain will make races more unpredictable and exciting, but today was just a washout.

    if i were the european viewers, i'd rather wake up an hour earlier to watch a proper race with no expected downpours or distracting shadow & glare issues affecting the race. choose the timing suit the race and not the ppl watching on tv.

    if it rains during singapore gp at night, i wonder how badly visibility will be affected. although i don't really recall many occasions of rain at 8pm.. so perhaps not so likely

    ferrari get your game together!

    What a massive blunder by Ferrari this weekend. They made Jean Todt look like god!

    yea getting back to the original timings should be the way to go. but the organisers themselves should already have known that sepang has a tendency to get rain towards the evening.

    overall it has to be the team's fault. there are tacticians other than Stefano who makes the decisions.

    simply said they're 'fooled' by the weatherman who's prediction of rain came a little bit later

    i said follow McLaren and suspend those who make stupid decisions during the race. get somebody who are competent to fill up those vacancies.

    damn... so fed-up with Ferrari not getting any points for the last two races
